Weekly DC Review: December 17, 2021 (Week 50)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. If you’re new to comics, but found your way here through other projects, DC has series for you. Batman ’89 continues the adventures of Michael Keaton/Tim Burton’s Bat-Verse, while the animated Harley Quinn series has Harley Quinn The Eat Kill Bang Tour.

Weekly Omissions- Batman: The Imposter #3, Pennyworth #5

Hero Of The Week- Richard Grayson put up 42 Points over 5 Appearances, a performance not even Bruce Wayne could best (his best weekly performance in 2021 was 38 Points). The Bat Privilege trickles down, but Dick is also the center of DC’s Teen/Legacy world. He also took Performance of the Week with 18 Points in a Single Appearance.

Antagonist Of The Week – We have two Ten Point ties, and both starts with B. Blue Snowman and Bizarro share Antagonist Of The Week as 2021 heads towards its conclusion.

Book Of The Week- DC can’t end the year without at least one more 100 Points + Juggernaut. This week, it’s the holiday annual, DC’s Very Merry Multiverse: ‘Tis the Season To Be Freezin’ #1. A hefty 116 Points was brought in by 22 Characters, many of whom rarely get the spotlight.
